Open the trunk. Remove the material covering on the left hand side. You will see 2 electric motors(similiar to the ones that wind the windows). One motor open and closes the roof lid the other brings the roof up or down.

These motors can be engaged and disengaged manually. 

First check that the motor's are working. 

If the motors are working. 

Then engage and disengage until they are in sync and open and closes the roof in the correct order.

Please come to me for further assistance.

Would this vacume hose being off have anything to do with not getting any response from my auto gearbox on my 97 2.6lt rodeo ? i go through gears & it not responding?


NO
the vacuum hose to the transmission actuator is a small hose from the manifold down to the top of the transmission
the hose you have off is from a brake booster or PCV unit

97 toyota forerunner wont switch to defrost


Yes I know this problem. I would bring it into a Authorized Toyota Dealer, They will be familiar with the issue most likely. Well the Technician will be, and he will lead you to your solution, it could become an expensive fix just a little heads up, but it also may not be depending on the situation, can't really be decided until it is diagnosed properly.

Escort 97 - drains the battery with the key off and the heater blower and wipers stay on .


1st check the mechanical switch, mounted on top of the steering column, by checking continuity between poles.Also check the harness going into the switch as well as the main harness coming through the firewall. Check these harnesses by visual inspection for burnt or shorted wires and wires that are too soft and flexible.

My soft top is not working, wont go down, when I release the catch the windows go down and when i press the up button to close thr roof the windows close but roof doesnt


No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.
